Pearls of Wisdom

"No matter what else is going on, Christmas is my all-time favorite period in the year.  It has a positive effect on me like very little else does, seasonally, that is."

"The thing that you need to know about me more than anything else is that I am nonthreatening. I don't threaten you. I don't threaten anybody, and I don't make anybody nervous. Or I shouldn't, anyway. They call me the most dangerous man in radio, and I'm the least threatening guy around."

"I don't care who you are. I don't care where you live. I don't care who you voted for, nobody is getting a tax cut."

"October's jobless number, which was announced right before Election Day, was off by 33,000. Now, the revisions are in, and there were 33,000 fewer jobs created than we were told in the days immediately before the election."

"Whatever you think, as far as Obama's concerned, isn't about the money. If the Republicans cave on raising rates on the rich, then they are admitting that that's the problem, as far as every other voter outside the 2% in this country is concerned."

"There is no tax cut that's on the table, ladies and gentlemen. There is not a tax cut. What we face is the expiration of the current tax rates on December 31st. If they go up, then it's a tax increase on everybody. That increase, in Washington-speak, has now become a tax cut if nothing changes it. It's absurd. There is no tax cut anywhere yet."

"If these rates go up on January 1st, if there's not a single Republican vote for it, will the Democrats get blamed? Would somebody explain to me how that's gonna work? When Obama has escaped blame for everything up 'til now? How's it automatically gonna be that he's gonna get blamed for it? It's not likely, I don't think."

"Even if we go over the fiscal cliff, you know the sky's gonna be blue, the birds are gonna be chirping, the homeless are still gonna be homeless. They may be a little angrier about it, but they're still gonna be homeless. The beggars are still gonna be begging. Low-information voters are still not gonna know anything. We go over the cliff, what do people expect, nuclear winter?"

"The Republicans have not proposed a tax cut for the rich.  What the Republicans are trying to do, God bless them in their inability to explain it, is maintain current marginal tax rates so that there will not be further punitive tax rate changes on people who earn a living, be they small business owners, be they employees, be they moderately successful, widely successful, nothing special successful.  They don't want tax rates to go up on anybody."

"I used to write letters to Santa.  My mom would mail 'em.  I'd make her.  I mean, I'd make her take me while she put it in the mailbox down on the corner."

"You know when people start talking about freedom they have to be old.  They gotta be old-fashioned and really out of touch.  Freedom?  Well, what's that?  Who needs any of that?"

"Lowering tax rates is not something that takes place in a vacuum.  There's economic activity going on all around you. But if your introduction to it is that Washington runs it all, and should, you are behind so much in ever learning what the truth of economics is."

"It's gotten to the point now -- and this is a dire consequence -- that the source of prosperity is not even understood by a majority of people, certainly low-information voters.  Maybe not a majority yet, but certainly low-information voters do not know where prosperity comes from, do not know how.  They suspect it, in fact,.  Prosperity is something to be suspicious of when some people have it."

"I was being honest, that this election was crucially important to the kind of country we are going to be.  And I believe that even more now than I did before the election.  Repealing Obamacare, stopping this kind of presidency politically in its tracks was crucial to this country remaining the kind of country it was as founded."
